Subject: gnome-media: gstreamer-properties does not change musicaudiosink and it makes totem make no sound.
Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2010 16:31:16 +0900
Package: gnome-media
Version: 2.30.0-1
Severity: important

/usr/bin/gstreamer-properties provides an user interface to select audio/video
pipeline in gstreamer. But, it changes not all the configuration (in gconf)
and it makes totem does not make sound when one changes audio pipeline.

gstreamer pipeline configurations are under /system/gstreamer/0.10/default
(in gconf).
gstreamer-properties changes the value of "audiosink", but it does not changes
the value of "musicaudiosink" which is referenced by totem. And it seems that
it does not change other configurations such as chataudiosink, *_description.

In my case, I have changed audio pipeline from ALSA with Bluetooth to
pulseaudio using gstreamer-properties. Though other sound softwares such
as mplayer works, totem make no sound. Actually, the volume control in
totem was disabled.

After changed the configuration value of "musicaudiosink"
from "alsasink device=bluetooth" to "pulseaudio" using gconf-editor,
totem start to make sounds.

I don't know which is the proper setting for gstreamer.
Totem may reference audiosink,or gstreamer-properties may change
musicaudiosink as well as audiosink.
Anyway, current setting makes trobles.
